First the reported child, that called authorities to report of sex

Finally, after months being ripped from their families, by an over zealous, self righteous, local government official. That had way to much power, and should be removed from office.
We see some justice and possible relief coming for these,
slightly non-conformist, families. Thank God. Their is still a glimmer of sanity left in some government officials.
